Calypsso


What a great feeling to get five challenges into the one card....and this is one of those cards, surprisingly enough!! Firstly it is for my Friday Challenge...my Twisted Sister Challenge, this week we were to use a 'fruit' image, ribbon and a punch. This image is from Kimmie's Blog Candy that I won and I have been waiting for the opportunity to use it - it is perfect for this challenge. I used a Nestie (thanks to Melinda80) and the felt flower ribbon. The next Challenge is a newie that I found while Blog Hopping last night...it is Carole's Sketch Fun Challenge and fitted with what I was doing with this card - if you get a chance, check it out here. Thirdly, it is for Crafty Creations Challenge which is all about Celebration this week - I do believe this card qualifies for that one and lastly, but in no way least...the StampinB. Challenge which requires us to use metal on our cards this week. I was going to use black buttons on the felt flower ribbon, but when I saw the StampinB. Challenge I changed it to black metal brads - all 6 of them! I have edited this post to add that this card is also eligible for the Limited Supply Challenge 204 on SC....yahooo!

So there you have it!! The card itself was relatively simple, I chalked the image and paper pierced around the edges. Each layer is backed with black CS and the sentiment is embossed....it is as easy as that. I have to say though, there is one more challenge with this card - I deliberately didn't sponge anything....a challenge for me, I just love to each for the distressing inks and sponges...but not today....it won't happen too often, but was good for me to step out of my comfort zone!!!

Thank you for visiting and for your comments. You are all so encouraging and I love to see that you have stopped by!! Happy 4th of July to my American friends and I hope ALL of you are having a great weekend - God bless you!
